Love in the Wild Recap: Then There Were 2!

Last night’s Love in the Wild challenge had all the makings of a good Nancy Drew Mystery: A map in five pieces, a precarious ladder on the side of a cliff, a spooky cave, a runaway horse, and buried treasure. (The Secret of the Inexpensive Summer Reality Series?)

More importantly, though, we got down to the final two couples: Ken & Yanina pulled off a come-from-behind win, and got to choose between their closest friends/toughest competitors (Summer & Chase) or the couple who seemed easier to beat but also more genuinely in the early stages of romance (Michelle & Ben).

There were tears (Yanina), a few snarky put-downs (from Ben), and a weave thicker and (most likely) more absorbant than a ShamWow (hi, Jenny McCarthy). And in the end, Ken & Yanina chose Michelle & Ben, so the two most appealing couples advance to the finale. Huzzah!

Beyond that, the pertinent details are all captured in the timeless form of the screen grab. So click through the gallery below, then hit the comments and share your thoughts on Episode 7, and which “couple” you’re rooting for in the competition/in life.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I’m really rooting for Ben and Michelle. I can’t stand Ken at all so I’d be very upset if they ended up winning the whole thing. I think Ben and Michelle are just do cute together without being completely obnoxious and unbearable like the other two.

  2. Rollin'Stoned says:

    Michelle has certainly been a revelation. I thought she was going to be one of those typical big-“jugs” reality show idiots, but she has been funny, smart and caring. All while never losing a false eyelash!

  3. Justin says:

    Ben and Michelle definitely staying was the better choice to me. I like both couples, think they have great chemistry and are genuinely into each other, but I think Ken and Janina are gonna win. They definitely remind me of Mike and Samantha from season 1 since they’ve been together since the beginning, but Mike and Samantha, in my opinion just can’t be beat.

    I want Ken and Janina to win but I think Ben and Michelle are great as well ! These were definitely the 2 couple I wanted to make it to the finale . . .
